Creative Writing and Empathy: How Writing Fiction Helps You Connect With Others

Creative Writing and Empathy: How Writing Fiction Helps You Connect With Others | Online Fiction Marketplace | Scoop.it

Writing forces you to “walk in your characters’ shoes” in a way that reading can’t.

 

Empathy and fiction: what’s the connection? Empathy is an important thing: when you lack it completely, you’re a psychopath, and no one wants that, except perhaps if you happen to be a character in a thriller.

 

One of my friends who studies psychology posted this on Facebook a while back: it’s an article about why men should read fictionand claims that reading fiction teaches men to empathize with others.

The New World of Publishing: Making a Living with Your Short Fiction

The New World of Publishing: Making a Living with Your Short Fiction | Online Fiction Marketplace | Scoop.it

Way back, over three years ago now, I did a post in my Killing the Sacred Cows of Publishing series called “Myth: You Can’t Make Money Writing Fiction.” And then I wrote the basis of this post about one year ago right now. And things have changed so much, I wanted to update this now, and then I will follow this with another short fiction post on a slightly different area of short fiction.

 

But in this post, I want to go after a saying that used to be almost 100% true before four years ago. “You can’t make a living writing only short fiction.”

 

Not so true anymore.

Penelope's curator insight, June 19, 2013 8:52 PM

 

Personally, I am a bit conflicted about giving away free writing work, and the jury is out on how well it actually works.

 

We all know the success of "50 Shades" and "Wool", but not all writers will have success like these two. These stories were posted on writing sites for readers to discover; they found them, and passed the word.

 

I am currently working on some flash fiction (500 word story), and considering offering one or two on my website for download. This could be a great promotional tool, leading to my other books.

As for many other things, there are good and bad sides to giving your book for free.

Robert Chazz Chute's curator insight, July 9, 2013 2:13 PM

This article by Kimberley Grabas at Your Writer Platform is solid. Even as I struggle with questions about how effective social media is and isn't, I see value among these strategies.

 

As you look through the list, undoubtedly something useful will jump out at you. Some items may never have occurred to you. (I hadn't thought of Google authorship.) I felt righteous when I saw YouTube on the list. You may have noticed I'm using more video in my book promotion for This Plague of Days. Between Vine and video, my work is more animated lately.

 

Maybe PicMonkey will be the revelation you needed today. Finding new ways to monetize is always good. A chance at a new partnership has just fallen into my lap and I'm pretty excited about that. (More on that later.)

 

Kimberley Grabas' first action item on the list is "why". She's absolutely right. We have to identify our unique selling proposition and operate by an defined philosophy. Once you have your Why, you will overcome any How. Number 1 is Priority One.

Enjoy the article at the link below. You'll undoubtedly find a plank in your platform that needs shoring up. I did.

 

~ Chazz
